    I seriously doubt that most of these employers would hire an RN without an intact license. If a facility's policy requires an RN for a position, then that RN must be in good standing. You can't call yourself a Registered Nurse without the registered part, even if you do possess the knowledge. Hiring an RN without a license would only call attention to the lack of license and the reason for the lack. A case manager or utilization review consultant that does not possess a professional license under which to make decisions?

    Maybe #9......
    I agree with you that it's doubtful that many employers would hire an RN with a revoked license, but the possibility is there.

    I know of a nurse with a revoked license who is an instructor in a for-profit medical assistant program. I also know of a nurse with a revoked license who owns a small trade school that offers training programs for medical assistant, childcare assistant, and computer office clerk. She and her spouse earn big bucks because each student pays nearly $5,000 in tuition to receive "career training."

    I also know of a nurse with a revoked license who owned/operated a very successful business that involved selling medical supplies to dialysis centers. After many years, she sold the business at a nice profit.

    Many of the staffing coordinators with whom I've worked do not have nursing licenses of any kind. They are either CNAs, administrative assistants, or people simply hired off the street to create the staffing schedule.

    Many pharmaceutical reps do not have nursing licenses. They simply have a BA/BS degree.

    [quote=freefalle;4747866]there's always stripping or barber college, maybe truck driving.

    Wow, I am sure this will be very helpful. Sometimes it is better to just say nothing at all

    Im very sorry to hear that your license has been revoked. I belive that you should be able to teach (maybe have to take a few classes and/or exam) with you degress being that it is a BS. i also think you should be able to become an Tech in the hospital if all else fails..

    If you're young, slim and attractive, I agree that pharmaceutical rep would be a good career to pursue.

    I'd say go to graduate school and get a non nursing related degree or another BS or BA degree.
    I agree with this idea. By going in a new career direction, the whole license issue can be circumvented.

    I would also recommend talking to a career counselor before choosing the new career direction...maybe find a better fit the next time around.

    What about that little section in the job application that states "List all licenses/certifications held, past or present" or the ever so wonderful "have you ever had your license suspended or revoked?"
    Well when it says "list all licenses" you just don't list it because you no longer hold a current license. If it says past license you can put past RN but it is no longer active.
    If it asks if you have a revoked or suspended license I guess you would have some explaining to do.

    I guess it depends on the circumstances. One could lose the license and still be perfectly able to teach, they are not going to harm anyone.

    I agree but with the understanding that it can't be in nursing... Many scholarly people have lost nursing licenses and become excellent school teachers. God knows we need good teachers in the south. I just don't know how this would work if someone wanted to progress and a license suspension was on record... beyond my knowledge.

    You don't need a current license to get into clinical research. Try to get an entry level position with one of the large CROs like quintiles or PPD, etc. as a CRA-clinical research associate. You may need to relocate and there is a lot of travel. You could also become a clinical research coordinator. Gateway Comm. Coll has an online program.

    Sad to say, I think you are out of luck unless you are willing to get a BS in some other field. Your BS is in NURSING: as soon as you cite it, your licensure WILL be investigated.

    And there is a difference between a "current" license" and NO license.

    The person in question still has a bachelors degree. They may not be an RN but they have the degree. They could teach (not nursing) but they could take some extra classes and teach school-or like someone else sugested substitute teach. There is no reason they have to mention that the license is not current.
    The Bachelors degree is in NURSING, period. BAs don't transfer from one subject to another. A BSN is not the same as a BS in Sociology, and any legitimate institution does it's homework.

    A BSN is worthless outside nursing, and anyone wanting to substitute teach is looking at 4 more years of ED classes, minimum. And they probably woild not be accepted, given the background checks done on teacher candidates, these days.
